The reception of this hotel is set in a corner of a shopping mall, which is easy to find and the taxi drivers know both the mall and the hotel. The staff at reception were friendly and spoke limited English but they did try to understand. When we got to our room, we were immediately struck by the lightness of the décor, instead of the dark heavy rooms we had been in in other hotels. Our second surprise, and delight, was that the beds were lovely and soft – yes, soft! And clean! We spent 4 blissful nights there! The room was spacious with a desk for the wired internet and all the usual facilities, AC, coffee, tv etc. The bathroom was made with glass walls, a feature of many hotels in China. Breakfast was served as a buffet on the second floor, and had cereal, cooked eggs and toast and jam for westerners. There is also a buffet dinner for 95 RMB which has a large selection.
For a stay in Xiamen, within walking distance of the port, I really cannot fault this hotel apart from the dirty carpets which seem to be everywhere in China. I strongly recommend it.
